Although this hutch is in need of a major update (& it will get one, but not til it's time to focus on the family room) this is one of my favorite spots to display & it's just right for my recent ironstone finds. I've just recently started collecting and I am certainly no snob about it, which I'm sure you realize since one of the soup tureens doesn't even have a lid. Don't care. I buy what my heart loves. Period. Well, that and what my pocketbook can pay for. I can't afford pedigree.
